Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life by The Wombats.
Having only listened to ‘Moving To New York’ and ‘Let’s Dance to Joy Division’, I look back at myself as being quite naïve in buying a ticket to The Wombats’ LCR gig on a whim. Now obligated to listen to some more of their songs, the release of their album entitled ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ came as a welcome surprise. After listening to the album in its entirety, I was very pleased with my ticket purchase. The banger ‘Cheetah Tongue’ did well in the charts, however the whole album is littered with tracks that are catchy but also feature emotional and sophisticated lyrics simultaneously, my picks from the album are ‘Turn’ and ‘Ice Cream’ and ‘Black Flamingo’.
The band formed in 2006 after the trio met at the Liverpool Institute Of Performing Arts in 2003 and have been successful in the charts with every album they have released. The Indie-rock band gathered a strong fan base with the release of ‘A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation’ and I anticipate that their fan base has only grown with the release of their latest album
